That pig at a Roger Waters concert (jpost.com)
It seems the Guardian wants to shut down all social and cultural life in Israel. Last week it published an article which accused the Jewish state of “sportswashing” its reputation by hosting the Giro d’Italia‘s first leg, irrespective of the fact that Israel had obviously been invited to host it!
Implicit in the accusation of “sportswashing” is the historical antisemitic trope of “dishonest Jews” manipulating the world via unethical business practice.
This antisemitic trope has reared its ugly head yet again today with the Guardian publishing a letter by artists. The letter is about the Seret International Film Festival currently underway in London. The letter states:
“Art, media and culture are being employed to give an apparently acceptable face to a brutal reality.”
Again there’s the implicit notion of “dishonest Jews” manipulating others in an unethical manner.
